Evidence shows us that different groups of women have a variety of experiences in the workforce.
The Strategy identifies six groups of women with specific needs and experiences:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women,
- Culturally and linguistically diverse women,
- Mature age women,
- Rural and regional women,
- Women with disability, and
- Young women.
By focusing on these six groups, the Government acknowledges that efforts to improve women’s workforce participation must recognise that women are a diverse group, and policy responses must be tailored to respond to the different needs, aspirations and challenges of all Australian women.
